What in the World Wednesday?
Previously, I posted links to meal planning. Has anybody started planning? I’ve planned the last two weeks, and while my family is probably grateful for the yummy meals—and they even like a new recipe I tried!—I’ve still had to go to the grocery store several times a week. I guess I need more practice in meal planning to cut down my trips (and my spending). Do you meal plan? If you have any tips, please comment below!
Now … onto this week’s great links!
- Do you want to help your kids reach their potential in all areas? The post “Living in the Growth Zone” from PowerLaunch: Raising Leaders from Cradle to College explains how challenging your kids beyond their “comfort zones” can give them the tools for success in life. (Watch out, mom and dad, you’ve got to get out of your comfort zone, too!)
- I’ve either edited or written curriculum for preteens for about 10 years, so the age group of 9- to 12-year-olds has always been special to me. Oftentimes, this age group is called “tween,” because they are not quite teenagers but no longer children. I was so excited to have found the site, B’twixt & B’tween, a site that is “part blog, part community, part Bible study, part activity guide, part resource section, and part group therapy for moms of tweenage daughters!” If you have a daughter who is between girlhood and womanhood, you must check it out!
